Yes I think so. But then that means thanksgiving, Christmas and spring vacations get cut short again to. Ugh!
I think they need to a year round schedule. Instead of taking one long break over summer, I think having a couple of weeks off each season would be better. Say two weeks for Christmas, two weeks in spring and two in summer and two weeks in fall. Studies have shown by taking such a long time off over summer means you have to spend the first few weeks of the school year refreshing what the students learned the year before. Shorter breaks more often, kids will not need weeks just to remember and can learn the next lesson more readily, and students feel more confident.
No going back in August or September is okay
I don’t think they go back too early. Maybe they need to stay in school all year. Maybe then they might learn something. A large majority of our kids aren’t learning now.
